Rotring pens with black ink, watercolour paints, Derwent Inktense pencils and wash, and gold Cosmic Shimmer watercolour paint.

The shapes and colours in this experiment were inspired by a photograph of some Australian sandstone.

I’m not happy with the middle more ‘scribbly’ bit, though the gold highlights have helped to make it part of the the whole. It’s similar to other work, yet different too.

A busily creative and productive couple of days off work – at long last, hurrah!  I do so feel out of sorts when a busy life gets in the way of creativity.
